Bye, bye stress & hamster wheelSport & relaxation - the effective combination against stress.

After a strenuous day at work, just sit on the couch, put your feet up and finally do nothing - an understandable impulse, but unfortunately not very effective.

We all know this all too well: We rush through the day at full speed, juggling work, family, friends, hobbies, appointments as if by magic and at some point we wonder why we can't switch off anymore.

No matter how well we multitask between office and home life and juggle daily challenges, we suffer from stress. Yes: suffer. At least if we don't ensure effective stress relief. And unfortunately the couch is not the adequate solution to our problem. But the combination of sport and targeted relaxation techniques.

Counteract stress with exercise and relaxationSport against stress for optimal balance.

Sport is an optimal means of reducing stress. It is less about the type of sport and your own fitness and more about the fact that you exercise regularly in everyday life.

Only through the high intensity of movement and muscle tension can the released stress hormones be effectively broken down - just as nature originally intended.

However, the subsequent relaxation was also intended by nature. After a fight or sprint, our ancestors didn't rush to the next appointment, but instead did nothing at all except rest: reduce stress. Running to the gym during your lunch break and then quickly going to the next customer meeting is therefore not the optimal solution either.

Effective stress relief: first exercise, then relax

Effective stress reduction occurs in two phases: sport and relaxation, tension and relaxation. And Vanessa follows exactly this principle in her weekend workshop. Intensive exercise and targeted physical stress are followed by exercises to consciously let go of tension.

As a result, something happens in the head and body: the brain switches from the sympathetic nervous system (alarm mode) to the parasympathetic nervous system (rest mode), positive stimulating hormones are released and the body, mind and soul experience a much deeper relaxation than without previous stress.

Which techniques and sports to combat stress?

Many relaxation techniques such as meditation and breathing exercises, progressive muscle relaxation or autogenic training are ideal for reducing stress after sport. Classic Hatha yoga integrates physical, breathing and relaxation exercises and is therefore one of the best forms of exercise against stress.

Whether jogging or Nordic walking, whether classic fitness, yoga or high-intensity interval training - which sport you choose is your choice! Almost all sports that stimulate the cardiovascular system, strain the muscles and put you in a positive state of mind are helpful against stress. After all, sport shouldn't cause additional stress.
